It's been a jolly day today. For the first time in weeks I felt almost normal and failed to sit on the roof last night howling at the moon. Having spent most of yesterday asleep and sleeping well last night, combine that with eating better and this morning I felt so good I went out to an early meeting by bike! Indeed in spite of the wind I cycled for several minutes both there and back, going the long way round as I was enjoying myself. Such a change from the last few weeks.
Indeed I even smiled at the woman in Tesco while she charged me an arm and a leg for my goods and almost, but not quite, started clearing up the mess around me. That can wait....
How lovely to feel normal again.
O to go down to the sea again
To the lonely see and sky
I've left my shirt and socks there
I wonder if they're dry?
Spike Milligan got it right. There is no better place to be than by the sea.
I have come to like it here, all I require is within reach, bar the sea.
One day I will by that wee house by the sea, few neighbours, no noisy ones, a good view of passing ships and all facilities required within a short walk. One can but dream, and my wallet is not keen on me doing even that!
